Patina is a highly corrosive, blue coloured chemical liquid used to age pewter. It gives pewter and aged antiqued look.
It is applied to your finished pewter artwork after embossing and filling the design with wax. It can be applied using a brush, foam applicator or cotton wool.
The patina works by lying in the recesses created when embossing your pewter design. The longer you leave it on, the darker the metal becomes, and this adds depth and interest to your pewter artwork.
Before applying patina, it is critical to clean your pewter thoroughly with Methylated Spirits to remove any oily residue on the metal, otherwise the patina won’t “take” and might leave the pewter “blotchy”, which is difficult to polish out.
